An appraisal was made about the impact of pinewood nematode (Bursaphelenchus xylophilus, Nickle) attack symptomatology on the mechanical behaviour of wood from Pinus Pinaster Ait. Two sets of 200 wood specimens were obtained for the study of both mechanical and other physical properties. The specimens, about half of which presented symptoms of nematode,(More)
BPM 37093 is the only hydrogen-atmosphere white dwarf currently known which has sufficient mass (∼1.1 M⊙) to theoretically crystallize while still inside the ZZ Ceti instability strip (Teff ∼12,000 K). As a consequence, this star represents our first opportunity to test crystallization theory directly. If the core is substantially crystallized, then the(More)
This study analysed vertical and temporal variations of cyanobacteria in a potable water supply in northeastern Brazil. Samples were collected from four reservoir depths in the four months; September and December 2007; and March and June 2008. The water samples for the determination of nutrients and cyanobacteria were collected using a horizontal van Dorn(More)
